— Police have charged a student with mixing chemicals in a 2-liter bottle to cause an explosion Friday morning near a mobile classroom on the campus of Garner Magnet High School.

No injuries or property damage were reported and school continued without any interruption, officials said.

The student, Andrew Garrett Eye, 18, of 1028 Bellewood Farms Road in Raleigh, has been charged with possession of a weapon of mass death and destruction, Lt. Chris Clayton with the Garner police reported.

The incident occurred just after 10:45 a.m. at the school on 2101 Spring Drive in Garner.

Investigators do not believe Eye intended to hurt anyone, Clayton said.

Eye was being held the Wake County Jail early Friday evening, a jail spokesman reported, pending appearance before a magistrate to set his bail amount.
